Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

123!, What are we waiting for?

Woodstock Music Festival/1969Image by dbking via Flickr1. Expunge all convictions for cannabis, possession and cultivations. and
2. Refund all fines and court costs else wise 'sorry' is just a word. and
3. Place cannabis into the Class D provisions of the Misuse of Drugs Act where, quite correctly, it can be managed as a health issue.

1/2 &3 act to coherently address the displacement of revenues from entire communities that presently exist under the aegis of prohibition's grey markets.

It doesn't matter which order 1,2 & 3 are done as they are required to be done simultaneously. Would this pass a referendum, no. Is it the right thing to do, yes. Does it comply with the BoRA, yes. Does doing nothing? NO!.

Its a matter of governance, not popularity.

The cannabis debate is  mischaracterised as 'what is politically possible' whereas the Minister of Health under whose warrant ALL drug convictions and investigations and oversight is exacted has a primary responsibility to "First Do No Harm".

 The required healing is, 123! What are we waiting for?
